The Pleiades Cluster

The Pleiades Cluster

Lovely 2K shot of the Pleiades star cluster. Pleiades, also known as the Seven Sisters or M45, is an open cluster in the constellation of Taurus.

The cluster has been created using Optical Flares, and custom flares have been created for the stars, modeled on Hubble Space Telescope images of the cluster. The distances and locations of each of the main stars of the cluster (including the Seven Sisters) have been plotted using the actual locations of the stars, based on their relative distances from Earth.

Would be perfect for use in a space documentary or an educational video on astronomy, constellations or star clusters.

2048×1152, 29.97fps, 30 seconds.
